The Associated Press
Natalie Geisenberger, the current world champion and Olympic bronze medalist, finished second in Saturday's meet, but had already won the overall World Cup before the competition started. Anke Wischnewski was third.
Geisenberger had the fastest time of the day at 50.894 seconds in the first run, but Hufner's two-run combined time of 1 minute 41.922 seconds was 0.038 faster. Wischnewski placed second in the overall World Cup standings and Hufner was third.
Although bobsledders and skeleton riders had expressed dissatisfaction with the ice quality at the Sanki track earlier in February, Saturday's sliders praised the conditions.
